A Century of Humour
Once you find an author you enjoy, look for a volume of works by other authors HE collected. This works by this list of authors will be a great place to find other books you're bound to enjoy. This is true with A Century of Humour. I found Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat this way and enjoyed it as much as Wodehouse's writings. This volume was probably scanned during the early days of the art, and it has a number of errors, but nothing that will keep you from understanding and enjoying the collection with, perhaps, one exception. The Persecution of British Footmen dialog is written with misspellings to represent peculiar pronunciation. I found reading difficult, so skipped this probably good story.
